Block Management Surbiton
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Surbiton.
History of Surbiton
Surbiton lies within the south west London Borough of Kingston Upon Thames. It is close to the River Thames, and 11 miles south west of Charing Cross. The area was founded originally as Kingston-upon-Railway, with the railway station opened in 1838; then further buildings developed in the 1840s. However, its origins go back much further, when there was originally, only one farm. For example, in 1179 it was known as Suberton; in 1263 it was termed Surbeton; in 1486 it was Surpeton, and finally in 1597, it was Surbiton. Its Old English name is derived from "southern grange" or "outlying farm".

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Surbiton
I had a very good walk at the Berrylands Nature Reserve, and especially enjoyed walking along the stream, with its beautiful trees surrounding.
Berrylands Nature Reserve is a 5 hectre site, a pleasant, wild green community space. It is an ideal environment for a good variety of wildlife. The stream flows the length of the site. It is a tributory of the Hogsmill River, where heron, egret and kingfisher can be seen. There is broadleaf woodland, with beautiful oak trees, hazel, hawthorn and blackthorn. Visitors will be pleased to hear the calls of song thrush or the drumming of a woodpecker. In the summer, the wildlife pond is good for damselflies and dragonflies. It was dug in 2018; and since then aquatic vegetation is growing on its banks. This is a good breeding ground for frogs, toads and newts. There is grassland, with colourful native wildflowers and plentiful bushes with berries, a good sustenance for birds and small mammals.
